It’s November, and the mediabistro.com Morning Media Menu podcast is getting into the holiday spirit already with guest Paul Malmont, a novelist and founder of Operation Warrior Library, a literary supply chain sending free books to American soldiers overseas.
“It’s a real non-political way for us to just help out,” he said. “No matter how any of us feel about the war, we’re all trying to help soldiers who are friends and neighbors get through the day over there. And these books go right there and they get passed around for weeks and months on end from one person to another so they stay in circulation and they help pass the time.”
Recently, Operation Warrior Library learned that audiobooks were in demand. The foundation contacted GalleyCat, whose readers helped collect 1,500 audiobooks to send overseas. Up next: Operation Warrior Library for Kids.
